For a designer, is crucial that he/she find inspiration. No matter how, no matter where. That’s the excuse many find and use. Erin Wasson, former model turned designer got her inspiration for the Spring Summer 2009 collection in something very…derelict-uous.
She’s completely enthusiast about homeless people and their unique and gorgeous style! I think about Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein and so on and so on (randomly picked names from my head), collections signed by designers as well. Flawless, constructed, refined designs which praise perfection and luxury. Why in fashion’s name choose the clothes of someone who’s flamboyant about homeless people’s style?
(…) when I go down to Venice beach and I see the homeless, like, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, they’re pulling out, like, crazy looks and they, like, pulled —– out of like garbage cans.’
